Salam. I wanted to know where I stand in a situation with my husband. We have been married for almost a year, he is not fulfilling his responsibilities financially, we are currently living in his parents home- it seems he is content with our living situation although I have told him several times that I would like to get our own place. I have saved up a deposit however he has not done the same instead choses to spend his money on bad habits. He is currently not working and does not seemed bothered to look for a job therefore, financially depending on me. He goes out until early hours of the morning (most days I don’t see him until I come home from work as he doesn’t get home until after I have left for work in the morning). He sleeps all day and plays computer games, leaving me to come home and do the house work. He also lies on occasion about where he is or what he is doing. I am stuck in a continuous cycle and have no guidance, I’m still young and don’t have much experience either. Is it acceptable for me to live apart from him as I can’t stand his behaviour and am depressed and miserable living in his parents home (he has ignored my emotions towards our living situation). Please help me as I am close to my breaking point and I don’t know what to do. I pray istikhara but I haven’t felt a direction.
